The B.C. RCMP have “temporarily” closed a remote detachment that has stood on Wet’suwet’en territory in northern B.C. for over a year, meeting one of three conditions the hereditary chiefs say need to be met before further engagement can go ahead. A spokesperson said police finished relocating the base of its operations from the Community Industry Safety Office (CISO) to its detachment in nearby Houston, B.C., mid-day Friday. The temporary buildings on the site at the 29-kilometre mark on the Morice West Forest Service Road, similar to trailers used at construction sites, are locked and behind a closed and locked gate, RCMP said.
